The Best Noise-Cancelling Headphones Get Better

Sony has returned with the new 1000XM4 headphones. They address the two main downsides of the previous product: you can now pair to two devices simultaneously, and updated mics should make for clearer calls.

The combination of high quality Bluetooth codecs, great sound, improved noise cancelling, good battery life, and smart features like autopause and Bluetooth multipoint makes these the best all-around option for most people.

If you expected major changes and upgrades, you'll be a little underwhelmed. The long and short of it is what may just have been the best noise-canceling headphone of the last two years has gotten a little better.

Could Sony’s next pair of over-ear headphones really get even better on sound quality, comfort and active noise cancellation? It turns out that yes, yes it could. We think Sony has made the best headphones you can buy today.

It trades off in terms of sound quality to a significant degree. Its default tonality is a boomy yet aggressive sounding experience that isn’t done any favors by both its frequency response or its technical ability.
